Self proclaimed? I, sir, have been elected to the position by a quorum (i love that one almost as much as you apparently love usurped)of my peers. Unlike the aged Mr. Castro, I have no intention of abdicating my position simply to be replaced by a carbon-copy of myself. If the assembled and unwashed majority call for my abdication, I shall abide by their wishes and step aside, freely bestowing the mantle of "Mr. Hijack" to any person they deem worthy of such a distinction. I will, however, gladly submit a long, long list of names of persons that would appear OVER-qualified for the position.

Any reply of yours with references to anything "long, long" and "submit" brings shivers to my spine.

This reply in and of itself has put you right at the top of my long, long list.

Coming from you, "being on top" is not helping me with my anxiety attack.

That 'This just in' feature is a nice addition to the site. A shame it wasn't there when that wealth of shows was put on last month. I forgot to bookmark the link to those that was here for a while, so if anyone has it could you put it up again, please.

Brass monkey weather here, snori. Had a few health problems so I've been taking a little r & r. Trust you're well.

Fine here thanks, and glad to hear you're on the mend. Like many others I've been enjoying 19th Feb '71 today.

I still have fond memories of "huffing" the fresh copies of math quizzes in 4th grade. That smell will stay with me forever.

As a technical side note to this highjacking, the huffing you refer to was mimeograph machine fluid, predating even the xerox machine. I dismember huffing stone tablets to no avail, but boy those temple ball salads at lunch sure made American History one of my worst subjects.

Yep on both counts, Earl & HF! The sound and the mimeo (sp?) machine...blue fading to purple, right?
